This is a rebuttle to both ''A Date with Your Family'', a movie usually seen as "an accurate account of 50's culture", and is also a rebuttle to the reviews who take it seriously. I hope that this video proves that ''A Date with Your Family'' is NOT an accurate example of 1950's culture, nor does it reveal "the horrible truth" of the decade. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topics: Rebuttle, Prelinger, NBC-TV, Coronet, Film, Films, Public Domain, History, Historic, Manners,...
